Post-Apocalypse World Fiction

I don't know about you, but I'm a reader...have been since I was a kid, and for the last 10 years or so, Survival Books-PAW Fiction as been my favorite type of reading. Not only do I enjoy the stories themselves, but I also learn a lot from well-written books that have been researched by the author.

Now, I don't recommend ALL PAW fiction just because some authors have to toss in crass language and explicit sex scenes that in my opinion are totally gratuitous...just there to attract more readers. However, as evidenced by the thousands of fans of my favorite author, you don't have to turn the air blue with cuss words and stick in things better left to the imagination, in order to sell books.

"Author Jerry D. Young has been a fixture in the survival and prepping communities for more than twenty years. The author of more than 100 novels and short stories, Jerry’s writing has been a staple for men and women of all ages and from all walks of life that are interested in prepping, survival, and all-around self-sufficiency. Jerry’s books are written with the goal of educating as well as entertaining and generally enjoyed by all who seek to expand their knowledge of prepping and survival topics while enjoying a good book or short story. As daunting as the end of the world, nuclear fallout, World War III, Civil unrest, economic collapse, solar flares, EMP attacks, and other apocalyptic scenarios may be, society has always been interested in the “What If?” of a Post-Apocalyptic World. Jerry’s stories provide interesting and practical perspectives of heroes and villains navigating Post-Apocalyptic scenarios including everything from Mad Max type of events to more relevant plot lines that seem as if they could have come from the headlines of the modern world." - Amazon

Why I Love Jerry D Young Books

As you may have guessed by now, Jerry D Young is my very favorite writer of survival books-PAW fiction. Extremely prolific, his books are clean, both in language and relationships, full of gear details, basic how-tos, dos and don'ts. Also, if you get more from reading a good story than from researching dry will probably enjoy his stories.

I've probably read every one of his books and short stories at least twice, and every time I pick up something new. I've also communicated with him by email, and I can tell you he is a gentleman of the highest caliber, and so I have no problem recommending him to you.

Let me add, that if you have an older child or teen that likes to read, I think I can honestly recommend his books for them. There may occasionally be a bit of violence, as dictated by the story line, but no blood and gore...certainly a whole lot less than they encounter in TV, movies, and video games.

Now, the list below of Jerry D Young's books is nowhere near complete. However, these are some of my very favorites, which I've read more than once.


Buy more save more

Most of Jerry D Young's books sell for $2.99 to $3.99 and while that's VERY inexpensive, it does add up after awhile. So if you buy one and decide you want to read more, check out his short-story collections and multi-volume sets for significant savings.

Survival Books-paw fiction audio books

Don't have time to sit down and read, but spend a lot of time in  your car or like multi-tasking? Check out Jerry D Young's audio books.

Non-paw fiction books

These are full-size novels, and you may find a bit or hint of preparedness, planning, or the end of the book aludes to a future survival situation.

I hope you'll enjoy these books just as much as I have, and like me, will pick up all kinds of valuable preparedness and survival ideas for all types of scenarios.
